UTA RN to BSN is awesome

  1. I just graduated, and loved the university! Very friendly staff and instructors, doable course work while working full time, however it takes a whole lot of dedication! I would recommend this school to anyone! Graduated Cum Laude, working Full time and a half!

    Actually, if you've only taken nursing courses at UT Arlington, you won't qualify for Honors. You have to have at least 45 credit hours at the school, which is pretty lame. So I don't know if the original poster of this thread is aware of that.

    Congratulations! I'm expecting to graduate by May.

    I wonder if UTA RN-BSN online students are eligible for Sigma Theta Tau.

    Hello all. Interesting thread. Congrats 9livesRN on receiving honors. I've looked at other posts, but I have to say by far this program is not easy. I've had many sleepless nights so far trying to complete due assignments as Im a procrastinator. What I will say though is that I wished I had known about this program at its inception in 2008. Ive had many coworkers attempt to demean the fact that I'm completing an online degree. However, I know this is education of the future. I will never sit in another classroom again. I too anticipate passing with honors.

    Hi, online students are definitely eligible for Sigma Theta Tau. I was invited to join and registered yesterday. We are also invited to attend the induction ceremony, but since I am in California I won't make it. This has been a lot of work, but I also think online is the way to go. I do not think class time is needed for the RN TO BSN program.

    Hey when do you plan on graduating? What GPA do you need to be invited? I have a 3.4.

    It's not so much the GPA, as it is being in a certain percentile of your class (I think it's top 1/3rd), and have a certain number of nursing credits completed.
